Abstract
For lack of sensitivity, conventional HDTV cameras can't obtain satisfactory picture quality. A super-sensitive HDTV camera tube, HARPICON (10 times as sensitive as the Saticon), and a new camera tube (more sensitive than the HARPICON) are proposed. The later combines a microchannel plate (MCP) as the electron image storage, a field emission array cathode (FEAC), and high-performance electron-optics. The performances of two experimental Saticon are also given in this paper.
